The Port Authority and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) will offer free LaGuardia Link Q70 buses from Friday, September 1, at 12:01 a.m. through Monday, September 4 at 11:59 p.m. The service is aimed at encouraging use of mass transit and efficiently moving passengers to and from the airport during the travel period over the Labor Day holiday weekend.
